At the very date of 15 April Microsoft shuts down all Xbox live services for the Original Xbox games.

I feel sad for the Dedicated Community still behind this game.

http://www.xbconnect.com/index.php and http://www.teamxlink.co.uk/ may have the only programs that keep Elite and many other Xbox originals alive after Live has been taken down, check them out! :D

My god I cant believe its gone forever.
I remember we were begging for this game to be backwards compatible but it never happened. :(
Hell I probably would have kept my OFPE copy it was bc.

Well, I've got 2 copies of the game and was thinking of picking up some more and some more xbox's just so I could keep playing co-op with some friends. I've got loads of missions from the action replay and really enjoyed it. But, it is a shame they never make it backwards compatable and I'll not speak of OFP2!!!!

Isn't it possible for BIS to re-release this game as XBLA and/or PSN game?

I would imagine they could use the ArmA title (although I'm not confident it would be a wise thing too do) as they did with the GOTY version?

I am confident there actually still is a market for an old game such as OFP: Elite, perhaps a little retouched with 1080p, surround sound and perhaps self-hosting (if possible?) support.
